Queer Pagan Speaker Directory

After trying to find a listing of Queer Pagan speakers and presenters online and coming up nil, I decided to create my own. I believe that having an accessible listing / directory is important – both so we can create more Queer Pagan specific events, conferences, and gatherings, and also so we can be represented at more “mainstream” Pagan and LGBTQ events, conferences and gatherings. Being able to easily locate and contact such speakers and presenters is important to either endeavor.

If you’re not listed here and would like to be, please contact me through my contact page or Facebook page.
